Captain Leland Stottlemayer is faced with budget cuts and trims Monk’s services as an expense. Though he insists it’s nothing personal, when Monk’s offers to help for no charge are declined, he and Natalie suspect otherwise. But Monk is too compulsive to stop investigating. So when Stottlemayer is arrested for the killing of another cop with overwhelming evidence against him, he must turn to the only detective who can prove his innocence.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Patty | 2/18/2014

    " I think this is the 3rd or maybe 4th Monk book I've read and it's the most recently written. I have to say she's getting better. Of course, Monk is supposed to be irritating, but sometimes the writing style was also irritating. But in this case, it read smoothly and with more humor and character authenticity, while never taking itself too seriously. I look forward to the next one. "

    " The monk books are good flight reading... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Leslie | 1/21/2014

    " I think it is the best "Monk" book yet. Many twists and turns and unfortunate turns of events. Monk's assistant, Natalie Teeger, steps up into the investigative world with "tickles" of her own, rivaling Monk's "shudders". True Monk fans will need no explanation. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tia | 1/12/2014

    " This book was hilarious. I read it in a matter of days because I couldn't put it down. It captured Monk's personality so perfectly, it was amazing. As a lover of the show, I was so excited to read this, but also a little worries that it couldn't live up to the show, but that is exactly what it did! Definitely a 5/5 "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Natalie | 1/11/2014

    " While I still liked this book overall, I think the storyline and connections were a little week. It didn't seem to come into a clear logical picture even by the end. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rhonda | 12/20/2013

    " If you watch the series, you can almost hear the actors speaking in this fun-filled novel of the television character, Monk. The Captain is forced to lay Monk and Natalie off for economic reasons which allows them to work for a well-to-do ex-cop's detective business. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jennifer | 12/18/2013

    " Captain Stottlemeyer is facing budget cuts and can't afford Monk's services. Monk is hired by a large company. With the great salary and benefits, Natalie is ecstatic. Monk overworks himself but then gets the biggest case of his life when Captain Stottlemeyer is accused of murder. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jennifer | 12/13/2013
